Profile:

Tony lives in Brent Knoll from where he runs his own business.

Tony is a skiing enthusiast and earlier this month was the first Brit to complete the world’s longest cross country ski trek, covering over 1,000 miles. He is also an active member of the local gig rowing club and the sailing club.

Tony is standing for Sedgemoor as he wants to give people a choice - more of the same, or the chance for change.

Sedgemoor’s planning service is not fit for purpose and needs a wholesale re-think, so development is carried out in a way which is acceptable to local people.

The roads through our villages are very hazardous. If we can slow traffic down and make it safer, then walking, running, cycling and horse riding will be more attractive and realistic for everyone. This also helps everyone’s physical and mental wellbeing.

There is a severe lack of green, truly affordable homes. We need these if our villages are to thrive as communities.   

I want to look at how, by working together, we can identify good ideas and use new collaborative approaches to find better solutions and services.

I will work hard for local people and improve our community.
